Went camping for the last 10 days at a eastern Washington lake and took my pontoon boat to get some fishing in. The fishing was good overall and I got allot of experience in lake fishing in. A few days into the trip I was trolling and saw in the water at a distance two round items fluttering in the water and I could not make out what it was before it disappeared. Two days later I again saw it in the same spot but saw it was a trout dragging some spinning gear, it looked like two spinner blades with heavy swivels. I could not get to the fish before it went deep. The next day in the same spot I again saw it and was in a better spot so I turned hard over and mended my line over the fish and snagged the line. I finally got the fish in after a good fight, I figured he would be tired from dragging the gear around but he was full of spunk. He must of been hooked awhile because he had a rust strip on his lip. He was about 14 to 15 inches long and fat. The other end of the spinning gear had 50 feet of 10 or 12 pound test line on it and tangled in the weeds. Has any one else ever had something like this happen?
